Audio, Music and Sound Design

Nick Patronella

Nick Patronella came to charlieuniformtango in 2011 from SugarHill Recording Studios in Houston, Texas. He began his audio career there after graduating from Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in Sound Design.  Initially an assistant audio engineer, it wasn’t long before Nick began to impress clients with his extensive technical knowledge and creativity working with music composition and sound design.  Nick has put his creativity to work for clients such as Gamestop for The Richards Group, Interstate battery for Firehouse, and The Texas Rangers for TM Advertising.  When not building a musical score or constructing sound design elements, you might find Nick at work on his secret passion: losing track of time in his favorite video games. 

The Barkers

The Barkers

The Barkers are a Chicago based collaborative husband and wife directing team. For the past six years and counting they’ve been creating killer videos, awe-inspiring imagery and even some of those catchy original songs you’ve been Shazaming, for both commercial advertising and editorial projects. And they’ve been lucky enough to do so for some of the world’s biggest brands including Crate & Barrel, Microsoft, Kraft, JC Penney and Hyatt.

In this new high-tech insta-snap-face-tube digital world, amongst a sea of slogans and hashtags, it’s easy to lose sight of what makes us all human. No one thing or one person is truly ordinary. And the Barkers remind us of this throughout their work. Those real life everyday moments, and the experiences that shape our lives are what they strive to capture. The work they create is not just pictures and words; it’s living content—made of bite-sized slices-of-life telling stories. And it’s this intuitive insight to social behavior and cultural trends that allows them to create high quality content that resonates and connects with their viewers.
